Recueil de poèmes en hommage aux deux auteurs
Landscapes of Barcelona presents a series of paintings and drawings of Barcelona’s seafront and urban areas from the Museu Picasso’s permanent collection.
Most of the landscapes were painted between 1895 and 1903. During this period in his life, he discovered a modern city in the process of opening up to Europe yet where the old still remained as a sign of the times. The landscapes bear witness to Picasso’s own creative evolution: from his formative years to his growing ties to the Catalan artistic avant-garde as he honed his first personal style. In 1917 he paints the city again and portrays it through avant-garde eyes.
These works are presented here along photographic documents that, to a great extent, identify them, and have been selected from renowned photography archives in the city: Arxiu Fotogràfic de Barcelona, Arxiu Fotogràfic Centre Excursionista de Catalunya and Fundació Amatller d’Art Hispànic.
